Queen Cheruiyot, the crown jewel of distance track

Monaco - Despite missing out on the IAAF World Athlete of the Year,
there is little doubt that Vivian Cheruiyot was the Queen of distance
running in 2011.
Three world titles, world leads at both 10,000 and 5,000m, a second
Diamond Trophy in the women 5,000m/3,000m and an unbeaten sequence
stretching from the Kenya Police Inter-Divisional Cross Country
Champions in February confirmed her ascendancy.
Cheruiyot was the crown jewel of another profitable year for Kenyan
distance athletes and the IAAF website End of Season 2011 review at long
distance action on track pays homage.
